Manufacturer And Dealer In One

The checkering tools are apparently back ordered.

Which is odd.

The maker of the tools, Master Carver, is in Englewood, FL.

The only dealer of their tools I can find is Wood Carvers Supply Incorporated; also in Englewood, FL.

Neither lists a physical address, just PO Boxes.

Timothy Effrem is listed as president for both companies.

Corporation Wiki shows
Master Carver
2870 Worth Ave.
Englewood, FL 34224

and

PO Box 5218
Englewood, FL 34224

Wood Carver's Supply
2870 Worth Ave.
Englewood, FL 34224

and

PO Box 7500
Englewood, FL 34224

Oh look, same street address.

I hate shell games like this.  Especially since the manufacturing side shows the item in stock and has an apparent live inventory system running; but you need to be one of their dealers to order on that side.

The commerce side doesn't have a live inventory system and happily takes your money without any notification that what you're ordering is back-ordered and leaves it up to you to check back with your account to see the message when you wonder about days passing without a new email from them.

For pity's sake!  Do they think we can't look this crap up online?
